Stephanie Jendis

Stones are where my work starts. I use natural stones, as well as crystalline and stone shapes, which I make from other materials like wood or plastic. My work consists of sorting and grouping-I arrange and re-arrange, create regularities, disorder and exceptions…Precious stones always possess a sense of glamour and secrecy…My jewelry is colorful but not brightly colored. Differences in colors and materials produce moods, which I have sought to capture.
